This is such a fun way to incorporate poetry into the classroom and especially for Halloween. The contrast in the illustrations are great with the dark pages and bright orange of the pumpkins.

Bone Soup: A Spooky, Tasty Tale | Alyssa Satin Capucilli

Mehso-so

?? Little One Book Review: Mommy and I read this book on Halloween night. Although we liked it, we didn't love it. "Bone Soup" was inspired by another story called "Stone Soup." (There's a brief description of the original story in the back of the book.) This will be a very quick review.

Book #6 in our "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" challenge

Review is continued in the comments section ⬇️

Readage Three witches (who are rather cute, we must say) are trying to make Bone Soup, and they need a wide variety of necessary ingredients to fill their cauldron. It takes the work of several hideous creatures (including a vampire, goblin, ghost, monster, mummy, etc) to gather and combine the ingredients, making this book a moral story about teamwork and helpfulness toward others. 1mo
Readage Although we appreciate the lesson of the story, the book was a little longer than we liked. For us, it was one of those books that you can read just once and not revisit. The three stars are primarily because of the illustrations, which are quite adorable. 1mo
Lifeisasnap Love the illustrations! Story was a little long... 1mo
Readage @Lifeisasnap Yes...completely agree 👍 1mo

• Here's another cute Halloween-themed book we read recently. It was a tad long and the subject matter wasn't our favorite, but we finished it in order to write a proper review. Working on posting the brief review to our blog and then we will share with our Litsy friends!! STAY TUNED for another Little One Book Review 📚📚 •

Snowmen at Halloween | Caralyn M. Buehner

Pickpick

?? Little One Book Review: Mommy and I read this book two nights before Halloween, and it really put us in the mood for the 31st. Although I was too young to go trick-or-treating this year, this book was my introduction to the "haunting" holiday.

Review continued in the comments section [...]

Readage It is a snowy October day, like Mommy used to experience up north. It is close to Halloween, and a brother and sister build a row of snowmen and decorate them with the sister's dress-up clothes. The snowmen look so fetching, that the siblings entertain each other by wondering what snowmen do when no one is looking. It turns out, snowmen get up to a lot of celebratory antics during the haunting season! 1mo
Readage When people aren't around, the magical snowmen of the world celebrate Halloween in a similar fashion to their human counterparts. They dress up like pirates, vampires, witches, ghosts, hippies, Frankenstein, mummies, and one even wears a lampshade on their head! They gather around the campfire (blazing amidst a recent snowfall) and tell scary ghost stories. 1mo
Readage They spend the night roasting marshmallows and bobbing for candy apples at a snowmen festival. They march off in a parade to go trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. These snowmen participate in all manner of Halloween-themed activities, proving that the brother and sister have very active imaginations. 1mo

Readage It's all fun and games the night of Halloween, but in the morning the snowmen have disappeared, leaving nothing but a pile of dress-up clothes and Halloween accessories on the brother and sister's lawn. It's been a wild ride for the snowmen, but they've had enough fun to last them until the next season. 1mo
Readage The whole book (which we enjoyed partly because it rhymes) is the imaginings of the brother and sister. We really liked the illustrations that accompanied the text; they felt muted and cozy and warm--despite the snow depicted on every page.

We checked out the additional titles in the series and we hope our library has "Snowmen at Christmas," since that's Mommy's favorite holiday.
